I'm not sure how "tweaking the sore knee doing a move that doesn't target the knee or even usually result in a submission, once" is "repeatedly going for the sore knee"Undisputed KING OF ASSHOLES.

I see where you're coming from, Cracky. I've repeatedly fractured both tibias, and on occasion some jackass will pass my guard and purposefully grind his knee across the inside of my shin.
In defense of Eddie, though, most of his documented techniques involve attacking the legs when the opponent stands. Hell, BJJ 101 teaches you to counter a standing opponent by letting go or attacking the legs in one way or another. Since Eddie's game is all about guardwork, it would be extremely counter intuitive for him to let go of the guard.
Yeah, it's lame to attack an injury (even indirectly)...but if Naoya doesn't want his legs targeted, he should keep his legs out of the way.

YOU DO NOT KNOW WHAT YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT, NOW STFU
I agree with Satori.

Any half-guard sweep that isn't pin-and-roll based torques the knee. Not in a noticeable way if your knee isn't fucked up, but it sure as **** does if it is. I know that because the guys are my club use (or attempt to use) those sweeps on me at every class. That one Bravo was using in particular. It hurts like a ************. Sometimes I have to tap to the sweep, not a sub, just the position. It feels like my leg is about to come apart. Because it IS.
I'm pretty sure you know more about the technical side of half-guard sweeps than I do, but I know for an abosolute FACT that those sweeps torque the connective tissues in the knee. So, without further ado, eat a fat dick.
